* Comicbook/{{Pondus}} has some interesting variations on this one, from the beginning with Jocke as the man leaving, and later with Eddie in similar situations. One of the funnies has Jocke waking up in a bed, not remembering much, but spotting a rather homely girl in the bed beside him. Cue Jocke getting fast out of bed, looking for his clothes and visually about to skidaddle, only to discover he is in ''his own bedroom''. Hilarity ensues.

* In 1967, Julie London sang "Nice Girls Don't Stay for Breakfast", explaining to her beau that the ''right'' thing for a woman to do was to avoid having to skip breakfast by not spending the night in the first place. But she completely subverted the notion; the last line is "[[spoiler:Please pass the jam.]]"

* Humorously done in ''Series/{{Coupling}}'' with Patrick's behavior as TheCasanova. He has it as engrained behavior to leave immediately after sex and instictively make a telephone sign should his lover be awake as he is leaving. This understandably creates problems when Sally tries to start a long-term relationship with him.

* Midge on ''MadMen'': "You know the rules. I don't make promises, and I don't make breakfast."
* Subverted on ''{{ER}}'' when Carol wakes up and finds Doug gone. He walks into the room a second later with breakfast and teases her about her thinking that he had left, although given his previous behavior (he did this frequently the first time they dated) he can hardly blame her.
* Used on ''RaisingHope''. The morning after Jimmy and Lucy have sex, Jimmy wakes up to find his van empty. He then goes into the house to find Lucy in the kitchen, talking to his family.

* Standard etiquette among the nobility of the Heian Era (794-1185AD in Japan). It was much ''more'' embarrassing if your lover stuck around, forcing you to explain or hide his presence from your awakening and inevitably curious ladies-in-waiting. In fact, the great Heian lady poet and [[{{Diary}} ancient blogger]], Sei Shonagon, even wrote an entry in ''Literature/ThePillowBook'' detailing the ideal technique for a young man slipping graciously away in the morning.
